"For", from C Duncan
Young Glaswegian C Duncan is the latest Scottish musician to sign with Brighton's FatCat, and will be releasing his first album for the label in 2015. But you don't need to wait to discover his charming compositional and performing skills. Last week he made the two track single For available for free download. Christopher has a timeless style, and an ability to make direct, but intricate arrangements. You may have difficulty pinning down the influences: '60s pop; orchestral folk; Sufjan Stevens; Fleet Foxes? I submit that it really doesn't matter -- the music transports you to its own world, and you'll likely find it delightful.
Duncan is son of two classical musicians, and has earned a degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He also is a visual artist, and created the cover art for the single. Download For at the Soundcloud link below.
